Codemasters announced that it’s to release F1 Race Stars, a new racing game for all ages based on Codemasters F1 license.
The new video which accompanies the reveal, shows how 2012 F1 drivers Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel have been transformed into caricatures, ready for action on the race track.
In the video, the drivers are shown blasting down the track in their F1 RACE STARS cars. However there’s a surprise ahead as the circuit begins to transform and a tight hairpin elevates into the sky. Undaunted, the racing heroes accelerate and take the race onwards and upwards.
F1 Race Stars will deliver super-fast racing and a range of power-ups for players to collect and deploy as they sprint for the chequered flag. The game will also include popular locations such as Monaco, Silverstone and the new Circuit of Americas in Austin, Texas.
Finally, it’ll also include 4-player split-screen racing and 12-player competition alongside an extensive career mode featuring a number of Championships.
Chris Gray, Senior Producer, F1 Race Stars, said: “We’re really excited to bring the whole cast of FORMULA ONE into a fun new world of racing. We’ve really let our Art and Design teams off the leash to bring F1 stars’ personalities alive in a new way and create a game where racing fans of all ages can jump into all-action solo, split-screen and online multiplayer races. It’s the game we’ve wanted to create for a long time and, building on our strong relationship with Formula One Management Limited, we’re now able to bring Codemasters’ long-standing expertise in track design and AI to create a F1 racing experience quite unlike any other.”
F1 Race Stars will blast off the grid this November for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
